(This is in the right section, riight? x-x;) -First time making a guide.
~Sub weapons are skills which you use another weapon like Gatling Gun or Flamethrower.
Ohaithar! Are you wondering why you should become a launcher?
Launchers are awesome classes, and easy to use for me. But before you make your decision, be sure to know the Pros and Cons.
- Good long range skills
- Nice attacks
- Decent mobility
- Good in team matches in pvp, in my opinion
- Slow attacks (Depending on your attack speed)
- Normal x-combo is useless with Hand Cannons
- Mp-Consuming Monsters
- For some people, combos are hard to do on launchers
-For launchers, heavy armor gives them power. Launchers can also use leather armor, as it gives them attack speed. But, if you don't have enough attack speed avatars or equips, you won't be able to see much difference if you have all leather armor on vs. all heavy armor.
-Launcher specialize in hand cannons, and you need a hand cannon to access one of their skills anyways.
This color means that the skill is super armored
-M-137 Gatling Gun-
~Level 1 needed for BBQ and Sub-Weapon Crusher
~Level 5 needed for FM-92 Stinger
One of the first skills you should have with you. This skill lets you take out a big gun, and shoot 14 bullets straight on the x-axis of the map. This skill should be at 5.
-M-3 Flame Thrower-
~Level 5 Needed for Fire Pillar
Decent mob-attacking skill. This skill shoots out flames, burning monsters near you. However, this skill doesn't go very far. Leave this at 5.
(I thought you turn enemies into food when I saw this skill ._.) BBQ allows you to kick your enemies upward with Jack Spike, then shoot them with Gatling Gun. Just doing this skill does both skills for you. Some people want to max this, however, the damage doesn't increase that much as it levels. You have invincibility when you're using this skill.
~Level 5 needed for X-1 Extruder
Cannon Ball lets you shoot out some yellow ball thing from your hand cannon. o_o (Yes, a hand cannon is required to use this skill.). You may charge this skill, but the charged ball shoots out automatically after a few seconds. You're super armored only for the first second when you use this skill.
Have you ever hated it when you use a sub weapon skill, but the monster got too close before you blasted it? This skill lets you hit the monster back with your sub weapon, just far enough to get hit. This skill helps me a lot :D. This skill is often used to juggle by pro launchers with anus-loads of attack speed. Leave this skill at level 1. You don't need to make that hit strong.
-Hand Cannon Mastery-
Improve the attack speed, as well as strength of your hand cannon, because you know you won't always be spamming skills through the dungeon, unless you have tons of mp potions.
-Heavy Firearm Mastery-
Makes your sub weapon skills use less mp. I would max this skill.
~Level 5 needed for FM-92 Stinger
Shoot a super fast
bullet. If the bullet lands on an enemy, the bullet explodes, and the explosion can hit other monsters. This skill should be maxed in my opinion.
Basically a better version of M-3 Flamethrower. It is more narrow, and the flames go farther. When you use this skill, the screen moves a bit in the direction you're facing, so you see farther. You can also move slowly when you're using this skill. Max this skill.
One of your only buffs. Increases the damage and hit rate of your sub weapons. Max this skill!.
~Level 5 required for Charge Laser, Quantum Bomb, and Satellite Beam.
This is one of the main skills that make launchers awesome in a Team Death Match. Shoots a light-attribute laser far across the x-axis. Leave this at 5, or max.
~Level 1 is needed for X-1 Extruder
Oh look. An upgrade on an awesome skill....Charging the laser makes your laser stronger, and more wider. so it gets more on the y-axis.
[Needs better description]
This skill shoots -I don't know- into the air, which lets go of bombs, so..it falls...I guess...AND THEN A BOOM D:. Keep this at 1.
~Level 3 needed for X-1 Extruder
~Level 5 needed for Satellite beam
One of the prerequisite for your awakening, Satellite Beam. You aim this skill, and when the location is decided, it shoots down a big bomb, which hits whatever it lands on, then explodes.
[Needs better description + Info]
The Launcher gets a big cannon looking thing out of no where, then shoots a devastating ball of destruction D:<. You can aim the direction of the ball when it fires, as well as charge it before you shoot. If monsters are in front of the cannon thing, the ball takes them along until it explodes.
[Need information + description]
Only get it if your launcher has a lot of attack speed, or if you know how to do this stuff on a launcher.
Other Skills-Jack Spike-
~Level 5 for BBQ
Knee's enemies upward by a couple pixels.
Buff which lets you shoot more bullets in the air. For hand cannons, you can use this skill to get you to places fast. Good for mobility. Leave at level 1
-Windmill / Rising Windmill-
~Level 5 Windmill to get Rising Windmill
Break dance? Your character gets it down and attacks surrounding enemies. Rising windmill lets you use windmill when you're on the ground, and you can use it when you're slide kicking (dash -> x). I have windmill at 10, because the speed to use it is less as it levels.
Kicks back and enemy, with a chance to stun. Personally, I don't see any use for this skill on a launcher. I have to get close, and I have nades and windmill to sub-in for this.Get this at 0 or 1
The only super-armor-breaking skill for a launcher. You somehow get the enemy under your feet, and you shoot a couple times. Dirty dirty trick. Again, I have no use for this, as I escape super armor skills. Keep at 0 or level it to 1. You are invincible when you're shooting down.
-RX-78 Land Runner-
You know those darn mechs and those darn robots? Yea...They're only good if they're high level, and if you're a mech. But, you can use this as a distraction in pvp, but I don't use this skill. I zone in with slide kick ->rising windmill. Level it to 1 or keep at 0
This skill are those nades. You "recharge" this skill to get more nades. You get 5 in a dungeon, and 3 in pvp. As this skill increases, not only does the damage increase, but the explosion increases as well. Useful to get dudes zoning in you from the y-axis, also useful to get them into BBQ. Level this to 1, 5 or max.
Important fellow. Sure, rising windmill can substitute this, but don't forget about cool downs. Get this skill :D
For a launcher, I see no use of this skill. Most jobs use it to help with their combo's, or to escape attacks. As a launcher, I don't use backsteps in my combos. And to escape crap? Jump+shoot back, or slide kick your way out.
So that's it!
At the end of all this, you should be getting somewhere to this:
